Bloomin’ Buds – Brenda’s Got a Baby
Wednesday 16 October – 7.30pm
Bradford’s Bloomin’ Buds present a special, one-off performance of Brenda’s Got A Baby, following a run of performances in New York.
Brenda is 16 and pregnant, while Amy, her older sister, is the first in her family to go to university. This verbatim play explores the challenges that these working class women face. As one sister finds it hard to fit in at university, with her council estate background, the other is discovering that becoming a mum is not what she thought it might be. As friends disappear, and finances tighten, the sisters confront and confide in each other about their increasingly challenging lives.
Alongside the performance, the evening’s post-show discussion will feature a chance to hear how their recent visit to America impacted on the Company, what they learned, and how audiences in the States responded to a play that’s rooted in Bradford.
The majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
